I have a job opportunity in Chicago - Cook County to be specific. Now I know only the street thugs and criminals are allowed to arm themselves in Cook County. Not that I won't bring my USP45C...better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.

My question is...

What about Wheaton, IL? My roomate's family lives there and I was thinking of moving my handgun/rifle collection there. Is it legal to have an AR15 there? More importantly, what about a Form 1 SBR weapon?

You guys know everything so if you can help me with this I would appreciate it. Shooting is one of my main hobbies and it is a key factor in my decision to accept the position. I have to drive an hour as it is to shoot long range in Atlanta so I don't mind the commute.

Thanks if you can help me with the info!

No SBRs in Illinois, Cook county *might* have an AWB? Ask in our hometown forum, lots of good ppl there might have better answers.

Cook County does not have a AWB, it just failed to pass. However, pistals are illegal in Cook county. Boy, you are moving from one crap hole to another.

My understanding was that Crook county does have a AWB.

Yes, Cook county DOES have an assault weapons ban, it's just worded very poorly and to my knowledge only bans some guns by name.

The AWB that was recently discussed in Cook county was a new AWB that was simply a version of the federal ban that expired in '01 on steroids. It basically said, "destroy them or get rid of them."

In Wheaton I think you may have to register your guns, and it looks like theer may be some restictions on private party sales.

Here's a pdf file from packing.org

No matter where you live, you'll have to get a FOID, and finding a place to shoot rifles close is going to be tough, maybe impossible.
